DIY Faux Stained Glass with Acrylic Paint and Puff Paint!

Capture the sunbeams of summer by making your own beautiful art piece to display in your window.  This faux stained glass uses minimal supplies and is a fun and easy way to create a pretty decorative piece.

Glass 1

Here’s what you’ll need to get started:

  • A picture frame with metal tabs that hold the glass in.
  • Dimensional fabric paint “puffy paint” with a fine squeeze tip.  I used black.
  • Glossy Mod Podge.
  • Assorted colors of acrylic craft paint.
  • Paint brush.
  • Razor blade or Exacto knife (optional)
  • Image that you will trace to be your design.  I used a flower image I found online, and then sized and printed to correctly fit my piece of glass.  Try to choose an image that doesn’t have a lot of tiny detail, because this project lends itself better to images with bigger blocks of color.

Picture Puzzle

Create a DIY puzzle with your favorite picture!

I really like this project. It’s great to make with the kids. Have them choose a favorite picture, get a copy made of it, because it will be cut. Then have them make it into a simple stick puzzle. This is a toy that can be taken along on trips or played with in the car. It’s small enough to fit in any handbag, so it can always be a time buster in long waits.

"Be Mine" Valentine's Day Glitter Art

Valentine’s Day is fast approaching, so don’t forget to decorate your house before it’s too late! My house is looking a little less romantic than I would like for the upcoming holiday. I decided to create a little decoration to brighten my space and add a little sparkle. I’ve always wanted to try out glitter painting, and I thought Valentine’s Day was the perfect chance to break out my glitter and give it a whirl!

Painted Rocks

Materials:

Directions:

Collect rocks as flat as possible and wash them well. You may also buy a whole package of river rocks at the Dollar store.

Words on Rocks

Rip little pieces of paper from your book and glue them down to your rock. Once all the rocks are done, sand them slightly so they feel smooth.

Use a pencil to lightly draw a heart and write the words down. The letters don’t have to be perfect but it you don’t like how one turned out simply mod podge over it  with the book page and re-paint again.

Seal rocks with varnish.

 

 

 

Linen Lined Jewelry Box

DIY Linen Lined Jewely Box

I bought this jewelry box but found it a bit too precious to use.  So I lined the bottom with some linen and have enjoyed using the jewelry box ever since!

1.5 - materials for linen lined jewelry box

2- tracing cardboard inserts

3 - cardboard inserts

After I got my materials together, I traced the bottoms of each level of the jewelry box on a thin but sturdy cardboard.  Since you’ll be using mod podge, you’ll want to choose a cardboard that can hold up to the moisture.
